Availability: In stock
The only Prestigée Cuvée by legendary Maison Krug produced on a yearly basis, the legendary Krug Grande Cuvée embodies the essence of traditional Champagne craftmanship.
Indeed, this exquisite Non-vintage Champagne is made from a blend of 120 wines coming from 10 different vintages, some of which are up to 15 years of age.
The wines were first fermented and aged in used 250-litre barrels, after which they were added sugar to complete secondary fermentation inside the bottle. Krug Grande Cuvée was aged for a minimum of 7 years before hitting the market.
Produced by Krug, the Holy Grail of Champagnes, this is arguably the world's absolute best non-vintage Champagne.
The Non-Vintage Champagne Krug Grande Cuvée is pale yellow with some golden tinges.
Immensely refined and endlessly suggestive, this blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier has a crisp, chalky minerality, with delicate suggestions of baked apples, smoke, custard, Williams pear and raw almonds.
Polished and velvety, this Champagne of Maison Krug has depth, tension and intricacy. Microscopic bubbles, fabulous acidity and great poise, all the way to a superb finish.
